Hi everyone,

 

I've started getting my parts in for my first PC build and they are as follows:

 

Corsair Carbide 678C computer case

Corsair 850w power supply

Asus ROG Strix F-Gaming B550 motherboard

 

The computer parts I'm wanting to get are as follows:

I want to run an 8GB graphics card but concerned about wattage, will have plenty to run the above parts and an 8GB graphics card or will I have to settle for a 6GB graphics card? Thanks for ya'lls help.

With an 850 watt power supply? You'll be more than fine. I'm running an 8 GB graphics card on a 650 watt PSU currently and even that's overkill.

Between those two coolers, get whichever is cheaper or you like the look of better. IIRC,they will perform pretty much identically. 
And 850w is that plenty for that system even if you get a 2080ti.


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.
